DON’T Push the Knob to the Ball
Taking the hands out of the swing is something that hitters have a hard time trusting. Often leads to mis-hits and poor bat path. A Lot of coaches teach lead with the knob of that bat to the ball. This does somewhat happen but not as drastic as some hitting coaches make it.
Do NOT Do This Drill
Here’s The Drill You Should Be Doing
3 Things To Focus On When Doing This Drill
We obviously have to rotate our body to hit the ball hard.
But without the bat being connected it will be hard to remain consistent and hit the ball hard.
Feel the bat turn with the body, you can think about keeping your hands close to your back shoulder.
Slowing Things Down
This drill is great to feel what the initial part of the swing feels like in regard to upper body movement.
Taking a couple of slow reps to feel the movement will help you more and more.
This is also a very easy drill to do, get a tee and some balls and get to work!
Since we are focusing on turning the right way will really clean up your bat path and help you make hard consistent contact
